Nurturing a Network of Dynamic Leaders

Ferrara Women Who Lead is an inclusive employee resource group whose mission is to build a network of strong, dynamic women who help to lead, support and grow both themselves and the organization.

Employee Resource Groups, or ERGs, are an essential tool for any company that hopes to build a thoughtful, inclusive culture for its employees.

A Mission-Driven Community
